Canmore condo description

Welcome to the Cozy Canadiana Cabin Condo in the heart of the spectacular Canadian Rockies, Canmore Alberta. The condo has panoramic mountain views to the northwest overlooking Canada’s first and finest… Banff National Park. The condo was completed in the summer of 2004 and sports all the modern amenities of condo living with a rustic mountain Canadiana Cabin style for a luxurious yet cozy and comfortable mountain retreat.

This two bedroom, two bath luxury loft condominium features a dramatic 23-foot vaulted ceiling and 12 ft wrap around wall of windows which are extraordinary for viewing the majestic mountain vista and Banff’s Rundle and Cascade Mountains. The prettiest hours of the day are dawn and dusk, the alpen glow on the mountains casts a warm light into the condo. Delight in the stunning views whether you are pampering yourself in the rooftop hot-tub, basking on the sunny sofa or grilling at the propane barbeque on the balcony. The scenery pictures included are taken from either the balcony or from inside the unit. The photos really don’t capture this panoramic stunning mountainview.

With 950 square feet of living space you will find the condo to be cozy & comfortable. The river stone gas fireplace sets the mood for a warm rustic retreat. Soft furnishings have recently been replaced in 2014 and include a modern tufted leather sofa, ottoman and lounge positioned for optimal mountain views. Rustic side tables and cozy cabin pillows complete the inviting space. Living room is equipped with a LG flat screen television and new in 2014 DVD player.

The fully-equipped kitchen comes complete with stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, microwave, new in 2014 stainless steel fridge, fresh and clean dinner/glassware and utensils. Everything you need and more to prepare a gourmet meal. The heated floor provides additional warmth and extravagance in the kitchen. The stix dining room table adds a rustic mountain touch and leather chairs provide modern comfort that is perfect for a family gathering or a romantic dinner. For casual dining or gathering around the kitchen, two leather tufted modern adjustable bar stools saddle up to the breakfast/wine bar.

BEDROOM 1: The open loft master bedroom has a queen bed with a down duvet, tufted modern headboard, rustic side tables and modern lamps to create a warm comfortable master bedroom.

OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:

INDEPENDENT TRAVELER - This unit is best suited for the independent traveller. We are nearby but unable to respond to all issues immediately. We are not a hotel or a vacation rental company we are an independent condo owner and manager and therefore we and our guests do not have access to 24 hour hotel services. We do our best to resolve issues as fast as we can, however if something breaks during your stay we may or may not be able to fix immediately.

ZONED VACATION RENTAL - This unit is in a legal vacation rental zone in Canmore. Many units and listings are not which can be potentially disruptive for your vacation. It is located in the downtown core away from the Trans Canada highway.

CORRESPONDENCE: Email is the best way to correspond as we have full time jobs and are not always available to receive phone calls. We can respond to emails at times it is not appropriate to call.

FEES: All of our fees are inclusive. We have no hidden taxes or housekeeping fees that will be added on after the quote. Our standard deposit is $300 to secure a reservation. We also charge a refundable damage deposit of $300 which will be refunded to your credit card within a week after your stay. For the fastest quote, hit the book it button for full pricing.

NATIONAL PARK PASS: We keep a National Park Pass in the condo for guest usage; however we do not guarantee it will be there as guests sometimes lose it. This is a $130 value for guests to travel in the National Park.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: This unit is owned by Danielle Powell and David McAleenan. Both are former long term residents of the Bow Valley and tourism employees with high level expertise in the Canadian Rockies. Picture is taken from top of Temple Mountain high above, Lake Louise. Now that is a view worth hiking for!

              Why the Owner Chose Canmore:
              This property is special due to its central location in the valley which affords panoramic views from almost every location in the condo. The alpen glow at dawn and dusk is an attraction in itself. This condo is rustic, cozy and comfortable, but essentially it is all about the amazing mountain views, which can be enjoyed from inside the condo through the two storey wall of windows.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Location, Location, Location! This condo truly is in the middle of the downtown with walking access to main street. It was one of the original condo developments in Canmore and due to this has the best location. Most other condo units are situated along the Trans Canada highway. It is so nice to leave on foot and navigate the town trails, stroll by the winter skating pond or over the historic mining bridge along the Bow River then hit the many cafes or restaurants in the quaint downtown to refuel. The best part of my time here is getting out and enjoying the outdoors. After a good day of hiking or skiing, soaking in the roof top hot tub with its 360 panoramic views can’t be beat.
